    Some sketches. I was listening to my ipod and a song popped up that was nostalgic. So I drew some chaos from the Sonic series!

    Haha YES! Adventure 2 battle is one of my favorite video games mostly because of those guys.Their hands kinda remind me of the power-puff girls...nice expressions as usual, dark's made me lol.
    the cracks in the beast mask guy in the first picture look like they're just scribbled on without following the forms, they're flattening him out a bit.

    Oh! I forgot to reply back to you guys on the other page! I'm sorry!

    Vertical: Thanks so much! Yeah, I loved Sonic Adventure 2 Battle growing up. Probably one of my favorite Sonic games. I still have my chao garden from way back. Thanks for the critique on the masked beast guy! I admit, I did scribble the cracks. I'll be careful next time!
    skMOP: Thank you and will do! The perspective of all my chairs or boxes always look off. I'll try and do better!
    rumpenstiltzkin: Thanks so much for always dropping by! Really appreciate it!

    Figure drawings from this week. I was trying to be more loose and free with the lines. I also used a better camera to take the photos!

    Aresa that last one is totally SICK great work! What did you use with that, ink and wash with a brush right? I was gonna say about the other ones there's a problem with overlap. You were outlining the whole body, so you should make the lines of one body part come forward to make it clear which is in front. But then you fixed that and it looks awesome, the only problem is you cropped off his limbs. Where you draw it it as important as how you draw it, I have to work on that too.

    The first figures seem to have too much going on for their size. You might want to get some bigger paper.
    challenge go to one of the gesture drawing websites and try to capture lots of poses on 1 page with as little detail as possible, just focus on the big stuff, the main idea. No fingers, no eyes, no subtle curves in the obliques, just BAM. Also as an added challenge try not to let any of the drawings overlap. I think I'll try doing that too.
    like this, and find this guy's posts on gesture.

    On second thought fingers and eyes could be important, it would have been wiser to say fingernails and eyelashes

    Vertical: Thank you so much for the advice! I did use ink and brush. We are using ink this time in class. I'm in the process of doing your challenge too! I try to cram in so much detail in a 1 min. pose and that's probably not the way to go. Thank you again for the advice!

    Here's one more figure drawing piece I forgot to post up.

    Thumbs up

    nice lifedrawings, as vertical said, that ink and brush one is gorgeous, youre great with faces, something i really need to work on -.-

    anywho, i hope this isnt rude or anything but again i think you need to simplify your lines a bit, esp if these are mostly 1 min drawings you need to focus more on getting the gesture/action rather than the details, more long simple lines...
    im horrible at explaining, but heres a little quick paintover (not the best, i suck at drawing lines digital haha )

    rumpenstiltzkin: It's not rude at all! Thank you so much for that quick paint over! I now see what you mean by "simple" lines. I'll definitely do this next time in class!

    Quick practice of gestures. I tried simplify my lines a lot more. Also an old sketch page.

    Hey amigo! Too many great updates since i last left a comment, i dunno where to start!! Lovin' all those Halloween sketches on the last page, you've got some crazy knack for making great characters that i easily fall in love with. The kooky voodoo bird with the nose-bone is fantastic, and I adore this little fishman in the last post! Great work with all the life drawing as well~

    Keep it up, each post gets better than the last!

    AustenFM: Thank you so much, buddy! Always good to hear from you! I'm still developing the fisherman character, but I'm glad you like what I had so far!
    rumpenstiltzkin: Thanks so much! I'm still trying to get use to using simple lines during life drawing.

    I recently got a new brush pen and I love it! Expect more inked sketches and pieces!

    Figure drawings from this week! We didn't do a lot of gestures because we were focusing on how to render in ink. Sorry about the angle. I realized that the models sat almost the same way, and I probably should have moved to get a better angle.

    Nice to see you still pushing those shapes awesomely.

    Ever considered using a red or blue pencil then inking over the top? Can't quite remember if I saw that in your sketchbook earlier on... Anyway it's a much easier way to get rid of your drafted lines under your inks in photoshop if you wanted to go that way.

    BlightedArt: Thank you! I've used colored pencil under my drawings before, but didn't do it that time, haha. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Reeeaallly crappy sketches. I don't know if I'm hitting another art block or just being lazy.

    We were doing portraiture and learning about color in figure drawing class this week! It was difficult at first, but I really enjoyed it.

    I like the ink figures! Wish I could use ink in mine, but my figure drawing place is in a library, so no wet media
    I don't know much about color theory but I can tell you this,
    RAINBOW is not a color scheme. (That was fun to type.)

    You really only really need two colors, and adding white highlights looks cool too. Be selective about which colors you pick and think about what effect their interaction will have, don't just grab 5 different ones.
    Um sorry if that sounds harsh, picking colors is really hard for me too but when you get it right it looks awesome.

    Vertical: Thank you and that wasn't harsh at all! My teacher actually wanted us to use all the colors in our pastel boxes. We might use selective colors later in class. I might've overdid it, though.
    James Gerard: Thanks!

    Some sketches of simple characters, just to get back into things.

    Hi aresa, really nice sketchbook, i like your cartoon design, for the nude drawings, i would say that sometimes maybe you try too much to focus
    on having curvy lines but you forget the hole pose, the balance and weight, anyway keep on sharing!

    Figure drawing from class. Sorry for my crappy camera not capturing the details. I only used three colors this time as well! I hope we go back to gestures, because I miss those.

    Hi, Lovin your cartoony style...there's a really nice looseness to them.

    Good to see all the life drawing too...some people who lean towards cartooning or caricature miss how important that is IMO.
